Design a jantzen shirt - Page 2

post #16 of 17
Thanks for your thoughts. Hmm, but why does it have to curve when it gets progressively longer?
Because (I think) as the points get longer, if the sides stayed straight, when worn the convex shape of the upper chest would make the shirt chest meet the collar bottom only under the back part and the points would not sit on the chest. If you think about it from the side it makes more sense. The points would be off in the air with a gap underneath where the bottom of the collar did not meet the chest. This does not apply to spread collar shirts where the longer points really mean wider points, only to point collars.

Thanks for all the great replies guys.. I decided on a shirt in baby pink, with side pleats, barrel cuffs, and thick MOP buttons. I specified my shoulders exactly (19). I heard too many differing opinions on the fit, so I decided to compromise.  I padded my chest and waist measurements by 1 inch and I chose the form fit.  The concensus seems to be that jantzen shirts are on the tight side. I'm aiming for a shirt with a 44 inch chest (I have a 37.5 inch chest) and 37-38 inch waist (I have a 31 inch waist).  I hope my 'compromise' will result in the 'right' fit.  (Yeah, I have the classic 'skinny inverted triangle' look) I also specified my sleeves 1 inch longer than usual (34 vs 33).  The concesus seems to be that Jantzen sleeves are on the short side. I also specified my armscye and bicep, though, I don't know if he'll use the data or not. Hopefully, I'll get this shirt in 4 weeks, and we can compare notes then.
